    Yeah, I tease the people I'm close to almost without mercy. Though with some qualifiers - not all of the time and hopefully not predictably... I won't tease about the same thing over and over again.

    I like to see the humor in almost everything if I can. Also, this was the dynamic in my family. Very teasey! I only do it with people that I feel know I care. It's never supposed to be cruel though sometimes I have to be careful not to go too far. I feel horrible when I've misjudged where the line is.

    Hmm, I can't easily keep it in either!

    Yes, I enjoy it but I don't usually start it....for some its a 'safe' way to show affection and liking. If I don't like the person, then I won't encourage it.

    At least I do. I've especially noticed this works well with other NFs (primarily I/ENFPs).

    Here's the thrust behind this thought... I like to give affection in the same way and when someone I like/love (friend/family) won't return in kind it results in me taking it badly - because I only mess with/tease people that I care about. Others I'm fairly indifferent towards.

    this could be true for any type. MBTI explains human cognition not human behavior (to a point).

    "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."

    Interesting, I have a few things with certain people that I'll go back to - it's a kind of a thing we do to each other... more than anything, it's like an inside joke.

    I absolutely agree with you. Totally hit the nail on the head for me.

    Teasing is a safe way to show affection because it's fairly non-committal.
    And I NEVER tease people I don't like.

    Playful teasing is fantastic, as long as it's understood where the line is. I can't stand people who antagonize each other - it's no longer fun or playful if someone's feelings are getting hurt. It's supposed to be good natured provocation, not a bullying session.

    When my ENFP roommate left the gas stove leaking (twice) and I treated him like an idiot, he did not appreciate it.

    hmm, well I have inside jokes. I guess I don't ever like to feel I'm picking on something with a person. OK I am specifically thinking about the way I tease my sis here Gentle teasing, it has to stay gentle or she'd feel picked on.

    Agreed. I don't ever want to be mean to someone. I don't like a picky/points scoring/grandstanding style of banter or watching couples engage in that. It always seems a little passive/aggressive to coin that phrase.

    I do love it when a boyfriend 'zings me good' about something. It's a delicate art. I had one boyfriend who was really good at it. Always flying close to the line but never over. He was not otherwise verbally affectionate but that made me feel like he 'got' me. It was a lot of fun. I was always wondering what he would come up with next, lol!
